So now that people have had their hands on a Mini SNES for a little while, it's logical to ask: how has the long lost sequel to Star Fox 2 fared?

Nintendo's absurdly anticipated SNES Classic console launched today, but somebody's already ripped Star Fox 2 to a handful of original SNES cartridges, listed them on places like eBay and Etsy, and sold them.
You know what time of year it is: the week in the calendar where everything goes full sports, and old favourites re-appear. FIFA 18 drops on Friday, but for nostalgics it will be the release of the Mini SNES (and Star Fox 2) that has the biggest appeal.
Beyond that, it's a bit of a quiet week. There are some major titles before Friday though: a Total Warhammer sequel, Cuphead, Ruiner, another Danganronpa game, and One Piece comes to the Switch. Here's This Week In Games.
Last week, Nintendo quietly uploaded the digital manual for Star Fox 2, which will be included on this month's SNES Classic hardware. But what's really interesting is that said manual included a whole batch of concept art and game design documents for the canceled Super FX Chip shooter.
I tried out the SNES Classic, and found that Nintendo has made some small but meaningful improvements to it over the NES Classic. I have no idea why, since the thing would sell out in 30 seconds anyway even if it were covered in rusty needles. Instead, it has a few nice new features, including a pretty smart system to let you jump back in time when you screw up.
